Grays Court York

We held our wedding reception at the gorgeous Grays Court in York, and we were blessed with lovely weather all day! Part of the house dates back to 1080 and it is possibly the oldest continuously occupied house in the United Kingdom. Grays Court is just behind York Minster, and the walled garden can be accessed from the city walls (find out more about the history here). A huge thank you to Rhiannon and all the staff at Grays Court – we had the most perfect time!

Here are a few photos to give you a taste of Grays Court. Check out their website for more information – the restaurant comes highly recommended and they also do a fantastic afternoon tea!

Our wedding day!

I’ve been so excited to tell you about our wedding day and have finally got the time to sit down (with a cuppa, obviously!) to write a post about it! As many of you already know, we spent lots of time planning and making various things for the day – there have already been several posts about my wedding waistcoats but I’m planning to do a few more about other things that we made too, so watch out for them over the next few days! It was important to us that our friends and family played a part in the day, so many of them helped out too – a huge thank you to you all πŸ™‚ Continue reading…

Wedding Waistcoats – complete!

20130707-191657.jpg

 

After months of planning and making, today I finally finished the waistcoats for our wedding! To be honest, there were many times when I didn’t think I’d get them done, and an equal number of times when I wondered why on earth I had decided to start in the first place…but today I’m so pleased that they have turned out better than I thought and that they all fit! πŸ™‚

 

I must say a huge thank you to my Mum, Tom’s Mum and our lovely friend Hilary for all of their help – I really could not have done it without you! And also thank you to Tom, who has put up with me sewing at every spare minute since the start of the year, and also has been very supportive throughout (I’ve had many meltdowns over these waistcoats). He still wants to marry me, so that’s a good sign!

 

Super excited to see the men in them on the day! Less than 4 weeks to go now – yippee!
